I stumbled onto TED while preparing my MBA Final Thesis. I was writing a chapter on plain language, and Google brought me to the TEDTalk of Alan Siegel. I translated it into Dutch, just to get a feeling of how the translation dynamics worked. I liked it so much that I decided to try to 'make a small contribution' by becoming a TED Translator. Since I'm a true philologist (word-lover), this is in fact just fun to me. In the process, I have come across zillions of interesting ideas, and interesting people.
